Robbie Ray's next start will be pushed back to Monday.
Ray was supposed to pitch Sunday against the Athletics but will get an extra day of rest after laboring through his last outing (3 IP, 5 H, 6 ER Tuesday against St. Louis). The left-hander is a dismal 0-6 since the All-Star break with a 5.93 ERA. The Diamondbacks are expected to call up a spot starter from Triple-A to pitch Sunday's series finale. Aug 29 - 5:33 PM

Robbie Ray was knocked around by the Cardinals on Tuesday, allowing six runs over three innings in a loss.

Ray's command failed him in the outing, as the southpaw walked five and gave up another five hits before exiting. He's now lost six straight decisions, although most haven't been as lopsided as Tuesday's contest. Even so, Ray is now 3-10 with a 3.86 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 79/32 K/BB ratio through 16 starts. An interleague date with the Athletics is on tap for Sunday.

Robbie Ray gave up three runs in six innings, taking the loss on Wednesday versus the Pirates.

All three runs scored in the second inning, when the Pirates used a hit batsman, two singles, and a double to take an early lead. Ray allowed seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out five on the evening. He's averaging fewer than six innings per start in 15 starts on the year, but he's been solid otherwise, sporting a 3.38 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and a 76/27 K/BB ratio over 88 innings. Ray will take the hill against the Cardinals at home in his next start.

Robbie Ray struggled in a losing effort against the Braves on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work.

The young southpaw struggled badly with his command in this one, issuing four free passes and failing to record a strikeout. Even with the rough outing though, Ray still boasts a 3.29 ERA and 1.23 WHIP on the season. He'll look to get back on track on Wednesday when he takes on the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Aug 14 - 10:40 PM

Robbie Ray tossed a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Reds, allowing three runs on five hits over six innings.

Ray struck out eight and issued just one walk. He served up a two-run homer to Eugenio Suarez in the fourth inning and a solo shot to Brandon Phillips in the fifth, but otherwise held the Reds at bay during his time on the mound. The 23-year-old southpaw has been money this season and holds a 3.13 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 71/21 K/BB ratio over 76 2/3 innings. Despite those strong numbers, his record sits at just 3-7. He'll rumble with the Braves in Atlanta next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 8 - 11:43 PM

Robbie Ray failed to give the Diamondbacks length in Sunday's loss to the Astros, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings.

Ray avoided the big inning, instead allowing a slow trickle of runs, with one scoring in the second, two scoring in the fourth and a final run coming home in the fifth frame. He struck out five and walked three as he fell to 3-6 on the season. The owner of a 3.01 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 63/20 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings, Ray will head home to face the Reds in his next start.
Aug 2 - 5:21 PM

Robbie Ray pitched well in a no-decision, halting the Mariners at two runs in seven innings in Monday's 10-inning victory.

Ray allowed six hits and two walks while striking out eight. The first run came in on Logan Morrison's RBI single in the fifth inning, and the second was courtesy Robinson Cano in the sixth on a solo homer. Ray has been terrific in 11 starts this year, boasting a 2.70 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 58/17 K/BB ratio over 66 2/3 innings. He'll face off with the Astros at Minute Maid Park in his next outing.
Jul 28 - 1:52 AM

Robbie Ray coughed up five runs (four earned) across 4 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Marlins.

Ray whiffed four, issued three free passes and gave up five hits. It was a disappointing outing from the resurgent 23-year-old, who had allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his last nine starts coming in. We endorse Ray as a consistent NL-only play. Mixed leaguers may also want to take a look at Ray's upcoming two-start week; the matchup in Seattle is ideal, while the date in Houston brings risk.
Jul 23 - 1:01 AM

Robbie Ray yielded two runs in five innings and struck out eight Friday against the Giants.

It's a new career high in strikeouts for Ray. His last five starts haven't matched his first four, but he's still pitching plenty well enough to keep his rotation spot. With no walks tonight, he has a 46/12 K/BB ratio in 55 innings.
Jul 18 - 1:53 AM

Robbie Ray held the Rangers to two runs, both unearned, over 7 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win.

Ray was unhittable for most of the night, allowing just two hits prior to the eighth inning. That inning began with a Yasmany Tomas error, leading both runs to be unearned. Ray yielded just four hits and a walk in total while striking out four. The win snapped a three-game losing streak and pulled his record to 3-4 on the year. The southpaw owns a 2.16 ERA and 1.02 WHIP through eight starts at the All-Star break.
Jul 8 - 1:23 AM

Robbie Ray couldn't quite manage a quality start in Wednesday night's loss to the Dodgers, tossing six innings of four-run ball.

Ray struck out six and walked two in the contest. Three of the four runs against him scored in the third inning, when he allowed a pair of RBI doubles and an RBI single. With the loss, the 23-year-old southpaw dropped to 2-4 on the season. Despite Wednesday's relatively unimpressive performance against the Dodgers, Ray's pitched well since returning to the Snakes' starting rotation on June 5 and currently holds a 2.55 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. He'll try to rebound when he faces the Rangers in his next scheduled start.
Jul 2 - 12:47 AM

Robbie Ray yielded three runs -- two earned -- in six innings Friday against the Padres.

Ray struck out five and walked none. He's the Diamondbacks' best starter right now, but he shouldn't be used in mixed leagues next week, what with his lone start coming against the Dodgers.
Jun 27 - 1:02 AM

Robbie Ray surrendered four runs -- three earned -- over 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

A big setback for Ray, who had been on a roll since rejoining the Diamondbacks' starting rotation at the beginning of June. San Diego got to him for two walks and six hits, one of which was a Derek Norris homer. Ray will carry a 1.78 ERA into his next start on the road against this same Padres team. We'd expect the regression to continue.
Jun 21 - 12:58 AM

Robbie Ray continued to throw the ball well, flirting with a no-hitter en route to seven shutout innings in Monday's win against the Angels.

The no-no was broken up with two outs in the sixth inning by Daniel Robertson. It was one of only two hits the lefty allowed on the evening along with two walks and three strikeouts. Ray has been dominant in four starts this year, owning a 1.09 ERA with a 0.97 WHIP and a 16/7 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He won't be nearly this good over a larger sample of starts, so prospective fantasy owners should be cautious. Ray matches up with the Padres at home next.
Jun 16 - 1:09 AM

Robbie Ray pitched well but stumbled late, ultimately taking the loss despite allowing only two runs in 6 2/3 innings facing the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Ray had shut the Dodgers out through five innings, but relented a solo home run in the sixth to Howie Kendrick. In the seventh, he got two quick outs, but walked Chris Heisey before being lifted from the game. Addison Reed came in and eventually let Ray's runner score. Ray, overall, gave up four hits, walked four, and struck out four. The lefty has pitched well in two starts since being reinserted into the rotation and now owns a 1.53 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 13/5 K/BB ratio over 17 2/3 innings. He'll take the hill versus the Angels in L.A. next.
